Comment 1 udo 2011-06-04 13:07:32 EDT
The continuous growth of space requirements to perform a preupgrade-upgrade is failing path: Systems are installed. And upgraded. And Upgraded, etc. Not REinstalled each time. Thus, the old limits still apply, even though we are trying to upgrade to F15. The fact that preupgrade still hasn't dealt with this problem which was even clear at the F13 -> F14 stage makes clear that we don't care about such real issues. Is it so hard to make a minimal initrd and start the real initrd from someplace else? This is not a feature request. This is a solution offer.

Will the preupgrade successor fix this?
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-03 22:57:48 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '17'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete.

Loads of bugzille emaila won't help. Fedup is not in working condition, so why stop with preupgarde?
Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2013-08-01 05:51:53 EDT
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
